Medieval Rothenburg is transformed during Advent into a winter dream with its Reitlersmarkt, set picturesquely between the town hall, St.-Jakobs-Kirche and Grüner Markt. 500 years of tradition meet you head on with the appearance of the “Rothenburger Reiterle”, a benevolent visitor from another world. Experience the Christmas event from above with a stunning view from the tower of the town hall.
